Want to become a member of our team?   Now hiring all positions

While we are part of a small chain, we still are independently owned and operated by local resident Hillary Koester. Hillary is a Florida native who attended the University of Florida where she fell in love with Five Star Pizza. She has been in the business since 2006 and after moving to Sarasota in 2010 decided to bring the greatness of Five Star here to her new home. We opened our doors in July 2012, and serve a 5 mile radius from our location, which includes parts of Sarasota and all of Siesta Key. Other companies may offer similar services, but our services are the best, and come with a personal touch. We treat every customer like they are part of our family. 

Here at Five Star Pizza, Sarasota we support local artists and talent as well as our local schools and sports teams, so please contact us with any questions or if you are interested in support from our store!


The first Five Star Pizza was opened in Gainesville, Florida, in 1988 by John Gillespie. It didn't take long before it became the University of Florida students' favorite. The first location was such a overwhelming success that a second location was needed. With John's brothers Steve and Paul a second Gainesville location was added. In a short time a third location followed in Ocala.

Five Star now brings customers the best pizza at several locations in Florida and Georgia . While it has become a small franchise it is still very much a family style environment and the commitment to quality has never wavered regardless of the cost of ingredients. While other companies have shrunk their large pizzas to 15, 14, or even 13 inches, Five Star has continued to make a 16" large and has even introduced an 18" and 24" pizza for those big families or parties. Instead of adding crazy new products to try and bring in customers Five Star Pizza sticks to what it does best and provides each customer with the best pizza and the best service. 

Bigger, Better, Faster! Five Star Pizza!
